The InfraGard® program is a public/private cooperative effort dedicated to improving national security. InfraGard consists of chapters throughout the United States and has thousands of members. The FBI leads the U.S. government side of InfraGard. The private sector side of InfraGard is led by a non-profit corporation, the InfraGard National Members Alliance, which consists of local InfraGard Members Alliances (IMAs) throughout the country. An InfraGard “chapter” refers to the local FBI, the local IMA, and the local InfraGard members working together. “InfraGard” is a registered service mark of the FBI.
InfraGard Atlanta Members Alliance (IAMA) is the Atlanta Chapter of the InfraGard program. It is a local association of persons who represent businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, non-profit organizations and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States.
From drinking water supplies to communications systems, chemical production processes to agricultural resources, Americans depend on a select group of critical infrastructures to sustain our way of life. Any attempts to harm or destroy these resources would directly impact the security of the United States and its citizens.
Most of these systems and services are owned and operated by private industry. Therefore, the protection of our nation’s infrastructure cannot be accomplished by the federal government alone. It requires coordinated action from numerous stakeholders – including government, the private sector, law enforcement, academia and concerned citizens.
